From July 3 to July 14, the 59th International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) was held in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. I do not know how anyone, but I personally did not expect such a frantic result of both each participant and the team. For the first time in the history of IMO, Ukraine took the absolute 4th place in the team standings, second only to super-powerful teams – the United States, Russia and China. We present the plaque of the first 25 teams of this Olympiad from the official website of the IMO: https://www.imo-official.org/
In the personal standings, our participants won 4 gold and 2 silver medals. None of our participants failed, which unfortunately happened in previous years. And often not with one. And then everyone solved the easiest – the 1st and 4th problems, and everyone solved the 5th problem. Two (Koval and Yudin) did not fully cope with a fairly simple 2nd task, but surprisingly, each of them did a very difficult task – Blacksmith 3rd, and Judin the 6th. So it was absolutely equal and extraordinary result of our dream team. I'm even afraid to think what would happen if they coped with these tasks, and even Sean showed all his strength… We present the results of all our participants from the same official site.

To other achievements of our team, it should be recalled that Alina Garbuzova became the best girl participant of the Olympiad from Europe, for which she received a prestigious award along with three more girls from other continents.
About the impression of being at this Olympiad, I think everyone will express personally. As for me – an unsurpassed result in extremely excellent conditions during the conduct. More later…if there is an opportunity and if someone is interested…
GLORY TO UKRAINE!
